Custom Embroidered Blankets Quick Start Guide
Custom blankets are great items to embroider your logo on, and give (or sell) to employees, clients,
event attendees and tourists. That’s because these useful and indulgent items get kept for years, creating

medium that comes close to it.) Plus, embroidered and personalized blankets are durable items
that can last up to 10 years or more.

How Can You Use Custom Embroidered Blankets?
Guess what else we love about embroidered throw blankets? They’re a great unisex gift or item to
sell. You don’t have to deal with the guesswork or hassle of buying different sizes for
different people. In fact, we like to say that embroidered blankets are one-size-fits-all.
Plus, custom blankets offer you a lot of space for your branding or message for a
high-visibility impression. Blankets offer lots of options for customization, and
they come in lots of sizes, colors, and jacquard and plaid patterns so you can find
one that fits your brand. Once you’ve selected your blankets, we’ll imprint them with
your brand name or logo.
Three top ways people use promotional blankets
Year-round portable throws
Our clients gift logoed blankets that their employees, pets, customers and prospects
love and use all round: to cozy up at home, to use at a springtime picnic or
the beach, evening barbecues, a tailgating event and so much more. (Your
recipients’ pets might even get wrapped up in your blanket.) Your brand will
get seen over and over.
Decorative blankets for special occasions
Personalized fleece blankets are great for company milestones, housewarming gifts, weddings,
anniversaries, baby showers and any special occasion like mothers day. Your giftees will
treasure the gifts for years. These blankets are usually smaller than regular blankets, so
they’re placed on the back of the couch or the end of the bed.
Blankets as Unique as Your Brand
At Corporate Casuals, we’re big believers in one-size-doesn’t-fit-all, so we offer
an unmatched selection of custom embroidered blankets so you can find exactly what
you need. Once you choose a style you love, you can easily design a personalized
blanket in our online Design Studio. Or, you can upload your business or team logo
and we can turn it into a stitched logo for a small setup fee. Our experts hand-picked
these unique blanket styles for their functionality, retail appeal and the fact that
they embroider well. That means your employees, clients, prospects or guests will use
these custom embroidered blankets at every opportunity, getting you thousands of brand
impressions every single season.
Copious Colors & Patterns
When our customers are looking for the perfect embroidered blanket to represent their
brand, color is one of the first and most important aspects. We have many core and neutral
colors, like white, black, gray and fawn, and even brights like vine green, rich red
and snorkel blue, to match any brand, organization, resort, school, team or event. We
also offer jacquard and plaid patterns so you can have your brand color and a little
eye-catching contrast too. We also have blankets with a core color on one side, and black
or white on the reverse side.
Full of Fabrications
There are several fabrics to choose from, too, including sherpa, faux fur and polyester fleece:
Named after the Sherpa people in Nepal, is a super-soft, warm and fluffy fabric that
resembles wool or sheepskin. Often used in blankets and jackets, Sherpa is usually made from
pure cotton, polyester, or a blend of cotton and synthetic fabric.
Fleece is inexpensive, lightweight, warm and hypoallergenic. Fleece is a synthetic
material made from polyester, and is heavier than cotton. However, it allows moisture to
evaporate, while keeping humidity out, to keep whoever’s wrapped up in the blanket comfortable.
Fun Facts About Blankets
These are a few fun facts about an item you use every single day, but probably take for granted.
Thank you, Thomas Blanquette!
We get the name blanket from 14th-century Flemish weaver Thomas Blanquette (see blanket in his
name?), who lived in Bristol, England. The weaver pioneered a heavily napped woolen weave, known
for its warmth and fire-resistant properties. The great bard Williams Shakespeare is the first
person to use the word “blanket” as a verb. In the 1608 play “King Lear,” the character Edgar
says, “ “My face ile grime with filth, Blanket my loynes, else all my haire with knots.”
By the end of Queen Elizabeth’s reign, blanket making had become a thriving industry, with
Yorkshire, England its locus.
This Is Why We All Love Blankets
Research shows that many people get attached to blankets because we view them as “part of
ourselves” or symbolize a time when we felt happy, safe and secure. Even as adults, blankets
are part of our routine to build a consistent sleeping ritual so we get adequate rest.
A Big Blanket Fort
Murderboat Productions and Rumpl built the largest blanket fort on record—a formidable 6,736
feet, 136 inches—in Portland, OR, on December 9, 2018.
Your Most Burning Questions About Custom Embroidered Blankets, Answered
Now that you’ve selected the right custom blanket style for your employees, clients, team
members, event attendees, guests or fans, you probably have questions about how we get your
logo or message onto these powerful promo items as eye-catching embroidery. Here are the top
things our customer service reps hear about how we stitch your logo on your custom blanket.
Q. I’ve never bought embroidered blankets before. I only have a small image of my logo. Will that work?
Yes! It’s so easy you’ll want to do it again and again! All you need to do is upload it into
our Design Center, and we’ll take it from there. Our embroidery
specialists have converted more than 100,000 corporate logos into stitch-ready files, so you can be
confident that your custom blankets will be an excellent representation of your brand, school or
team. If you have any preferences on the logo size, colors or location on the embroidered blanket, just
add them in the order notes.
Q. So you need to “convert” my logo into an embroidery file. What exactly does that mean?
Unlike screen printing when you upload an image or logo for us to embroider on your blankets, we
convert it to an embroidery-machine-friendly file so we can stitch it out on our machine.
The talented embroidery artists on our Corporate Casuals design team use the most up-to-date
digitizing software to develop a stitch file that will result in the crispest, best-looking
Q. How do I choose the right thread colors for my logo?
Extra points for a great question! The thread colors you choose for your logo is one of the most
important decisions you’ll make during your ordering process. Most likely, you’re working with
specific colors your company has selected to represent your brand. If that’s the case, you’ll
generally have access to your brand’s Pantone Matching System (PMS) colors. We can easily match
our embroidery thread colors to your brand’s colors at no charge.
Q. I might not want my logo on the towel or robe. I might just want some block text embroidered on it. Is that possible?
Yes, absolutely. Simply visit our online Design Studio and create artwork using text only. You
can choose from different block fonts, along with other fancy and script fonts. There’s no
setup fee or conversion process required for any embroidered logos that you create in our Design
Embroidery Locations on Your Custom Blankets
The default location for an embroidered logo on a blanket is the bottom lower right-hand corner
at a 45 degree angle. You can special request an alternate placement on the bottom center or
bottom left-hand corner.
